(MANORVILLE, NEW YORK) – The Long Island Game Farm – Wildlife Park & Children’s Zoo celebrated its first ever Founder’s Day – A Family Appreciation Day by offering guests $6 admission for adults and free admission for children on Saturday, August 26. The park also gave out free backpacks and bracelets to the first 500 visitors.

During the event, guests were treated to free face painting and a story hour with Long Island Game Farm owner Melinda Novak and her mother Diane Novak, who founded the park with her husband Stanley Novak in 1970.

“Our Founder’s Day Celebration was a great way to honor my parents, who put so much thought and care into starting this park, as well as the guests who have continually supported us through the decades,” says Melinda Novak, Co-Owner/Vice President, Long Island Game Farm — Wildlife Park & Children’s Zoo. “With the power of social media, we’ve found that many families have fond memories of the park in the 1970s and 1980s, and are now bringing their children and grandchildren to our zoo. Our guests mean the world to us and we hope that this Family Appreciation event has shown that.”

The Long Island Game Farm features interactive animal experiences, where guests can get up-close and personal with their favorite animals. In addition to getting to feed the giraffe and camels, guests can hand-feed the animals in “Bambiland,” and bottle-feed goats and other baby animals in the nursery. As the park closes in on its 50th Anniversary, additional family appreciation and special events will be planned.
